Cuts in schools unacceptable alternative to district consolidation
“Give and take part of deal with term limits” (Our Views, July 3) said Oklahoma House Speaker Kris Steele “accomplished much that will benefit the state in the years ahead.” One of the things he accomplished was allowing small school districts to cut certain certified support positions (librarians, for example) from full time to half time. Some of our smaller school districts cover vast numbers of square miles, but bleeding a school district dry piece by piece isn't an acceptable alternative to school district consolidation. A cut in one spot may benefit another locality, but some such decisions leave voids that are detrimental to those directly affected.
